Photo: DKWe’re obsessed with Nordic Noir and especially The Killing, which is now in its third and final series (sulk..). For those who sat down and watched the first two episodes at the weekend would rejoice that Scandinavian crime heroine Sarah Lund (aka Sofie Gråbøl) is back – and she’s got a new jumper! And a rather dashing co-star, Mathias Borch (played by Nikolaj Lie Kaas)…

But this time around the currently most talked about knitwear piece isn’t due to its previously mentioned superpowers, but the fact that it is… well rather boring. A white and black tyre track patterned thing, it didn’t get us as excited as the Gudrun & Gudrun marvel from season one. Can it be? Can our favourite series from the North be ending on a fashion low?

There might be more twists that expected (we’ve already had a few dead bodies and an abduction) as the publicity shots released for the final season show Sofie Gråbøl with her trademark messy ponytail  and a navy Nordic jumper which has (cue excitement!) the same pattern as the original Jumper, just a different colour!

Could it be that as the series progresses, we will see a return of the much loved Faroese jumper? Well the navy knitwear by Gudrun & Gudrun is on sale now for €280 (£226)…

If you want to emulate Sarah Lund’s style and make a killing in the fashion stakes this winter, team a chunky Nordic-style jumper with faded blue jeans and a pair of heels. And don’t forget that messy ponytail and understated make-up.

 Jeans: Lee, £79.90 / Jumper: Gudrun & Gudrun,  €280.00 / Shoes: Topshop, £110.00
